Us and Them
And after all we're only ordinary men
Me, and you
God only knows it's not what we would choose to do
Forward he cried from the rear
and the front rank died
And the General sat, as the lines on the map
moved from side to side
Black and Blue
And who knows which is which and who is who
Up and Down
And in the end it's only round and round and round
Haven't you heard it's a battle of words
the poster bearer cried
Listen son, said the man with the gun
There's room for you inside
Down and Out
It can't be helped but there's a lot of it about
With, without
And who'll deny that's what the fightings all about
Get out of the way, it's a busy day
And I've got things on my mind
For want of the price of tea and a slice
The old man died

it makes me so sad that people dismiss this as hippie music or outdated. i used to listen to this in middle school and high school and it was such a comfort. then i started getting older and got into very angry, noisy music and i lost touch. coming back to it feels like coming home. i didn't even know how badly i missed the pure love and sensitivity of pink floyd. if only every person with power in our world could be so human, but it doesn't always work that way. it's always us vs. them. or as Fallout always says, "War. War never changes."

This song is great. It's "One of the 100 greatest songs ever" kind of great.

That sax is other worldly, but that guitar riff sets the mood. you could even play it on the piano and it sounds majestic. Truly a versatile song filled with ear sex.

This song has a very close memory attached for me. I remember it was Pink Floyd's The Pulse Tour (1994 I guess), which me and my girlfriend attended. Just after the concert I proposed her in front of a lot of people (it was like a large gathering because no one went away right after the gig ended) and I shouted aloud "Zara, will you marry me?" "Fuck yes, Benny, fuck yes!". and everyone started cheering and hooting. We smooched for like 2-3 minutes (pretty long time in front of people) We will be having our 20th wedding anniversary next week, also my daughter's 16th birthday (yes, same day) :-)

Dont mean to bum anyone out, but every time i hear this song i think of my father. Every Saturday my father would blare his pink floyd make his famous biscuits and gravy, playing floyd all the way from Shine on you crazy Diamond to War dogs. Im now 18 and he died of colon problems in early November 2015. The reason this song made me have the courage to post something like this is because i played this and dozens of other pink floyd songs in his ears while he was in a coma for 2 months. Pink Floyd gave me some of the final moments with my best friend .. iv never commented anything on youtube before. Im never the type to seek sympathy but this song brings me joy and reminds me he will always be with me. Me and You. God only knows its not what we would choose, to do.
